I asked my sister and brother-in-law how many houses were in the North Pole village display in the atrium of their home.
"A lot!" was their reply.
My brother-in-law created the mountain on which the houses are arranged. The cheerful display greets all who enter their home and is visible on four sides.
Several of the houses and accessories were purchased at half the normal price when a Riverton store was reducing inventory and/or eliminating displays. The bargains were too good to pass.
It took a holiday village to add a spark of nostalgia to the season.
